Evan Longoria hits third homer of game, Rays lead 4-0

In game 162, Evan Longoria treats pitchers like they stole his cap. It doesn't matter what year it is. Last season, Longoria capped off the regular season with a two-homer game that propelled the Rays into the playoffs. With the Rays already eliminated, Longoria need to put a little more elbow grease into it if he wanted to make the game memorable.

A three-homer game? A three-homer game. After victimizing Chris Tillman twice with solo homers, Longoria took Jake Arrieta deep in the sixth inning, putting the Rays up 4-0 against the Orioles. It was the second career game with three home runs for Longoria, and the fourth time a hitter has done it in Rays history. The last time was B.J. Upton about three weeks ago.

The three-homer game puts Longoria 33 homers behind Carlos Pena for the Rays' franchise leader, with 130 for Longoria in his career, and 166 for Pena.
